    Hey guys,
    so for around 2 weeks I have tried to grow my instagram main account with by commenting with a few other accounts (each with a few photos, some followers, some followings, not looking to spammy).

    Music niche.

    I tried comments like this:
    You {need to|should} check out @myAccount if you {love|like} {good music|good vibes|electro music|music quotes} #myAccountpromoweek
    as well as only tagging @myAccount

    but I only got around 1 follower per 30 comments with is not very much.

    Have you tried this method and what comments do you think might work?

    Find a way to make it comment on shoutouts that pages with 1+ mill followers post. That will give a huge boost

    I dont think commenting on huge pages works well, at least not from my experience. Could you explain why you think it works that well?

    1 key is to make your comment sound like a real person.

    For example if you're commenting on popular music pages:

    -[youraccount] this guy is no way as good as you are!
    -Wow this sounds just like [youraccount]

    Your main purpose should be to have them view your instagram page, and then because you have such high quality content they stay and follow.

    EDIT:

    My examples were for other accounts that would like to your account.

    If you're posting from your account you can go the route of
    -Can't wait to play with you later this week.
    -Pretty fun opening for you guys

    Some good advice in here I guess. Will try out sentences like the ones you posted and report then. Thanks!
    Another comment that got me some followers was like "Follow @myaccount and win a shoutout" but I stopped using it because I didn't want to disappoint people.

    Even if I use other accounts, which are not related to my main account for that?
    I mean, I get some real comments too. If they would ban for this reason it would be possible to ban almost any account just by mass tagging them.

    Commenting is a big waste of time. Just do follow/unfollow. Find the right people to follow. Like if your on music, follow folks who like traveling, summer. For example, I found a niche which isn't popular on IG. 3 days ago I started posing. And I already have almost 900 followers from only 4 post, just by following the right people, and they follow me back. Not only that, niche has good engagement, like one of my post, I have over 40 likes, and over 90 comments. Hahaha. The trick is follow the right people. For example again, if you are into law niche, follow people who follows politics page, follow people who likes politics post. Later unfollow everybody who doesn't follow you back. After some months, when you have thousands of followers, unfollow everybody (by then, they wouldn't even notice you in followed them). Thats just it. Sorry to any person who feels i just leaked a secret method. Lets all share what we know as a family.

    I am growing my instagram account by following & unfollowing. I just thought I could grow it faster by automated mass commenting.

    That wasnt helpful at all

    Well, I have been trying to grow my account through follow/in follow method. I already got 2 temporary blocks, the second one lasted for more than 12 hours. I had to report to instagram, and maybe they we're the one who removed the block, I don't know. Anyway, I've been trying to hit 2000, and it's been proving very hard because people are no longer following back. I just managed to hit 2k about 1 hour ago 2k followers in 7 days, and I'm in education niche. What do you guys think?

    if you are getting temporary blocks, you have been hitting it too hard.
    Start slowly do not unfollow more than 200 per day at the beginning.
    And if you are doing this by hand, do not unfollow more than 50 people at once.
